Is Nadal gay?

TennisFAAUNNNK!
Yes I had managed to work that out, so it was a rhetorical question really.  Stirring things up for the sake of it I expect.

Why was this raked up again?!  I couldn't care less whether he's gay or not anyway.  It's his tennis that matters as far as I'm concerned.
  I disagree, actually. Not because I'm anti-gay, but because it's an important aspect of an exceptional player. I'm always interested in the whole person. You can't divorce the tennis from the guy behind it - as Andy fans we ought to appreciate that better than most.

Fiverings, given the homophobia rampant in sport, I believe sexual orientation is nobody's business but their own and should remain so.
I don't see why, either,  it has any relevance whatsoever to how someone plays tennis.

   Is homophobia rampant in sport? If it is, all the more reason to confront it. After all gay people are being respected in society in general, certainly in Europe.  Or perhaps you're thinking about sponsors, but money always follows talent. And homosexuality in elite tennis is nothing new, for either gender.

Only if you find it so, which I don't.  A person's sexual orientation doesn't matter to me, it's what they're like as a person which is important.
